Do we know how big this is, file wise? Debating just downloading it from the store so I can play on Thursday night (gamestop is the only place near me that does midnight releases and I refuse to give them money) but I don't have an extra SD card because I generally just buy physical.

There's also Octopath Traveler (which seems like a sorta-SaGa game), and SMT5, as far as RPGs coming out in the future.

Also Prime 4.

They got compared a lot because they came out within like a week of each other and the combat is kinda similar (bow/melee)

All I remember personally is that after playing it for a couple hours all I wanted to do was play Horizon instead (which I did!)

I don't expect this to come out before 2019 personally, felt like the E3 reveal was just a "WE'RE MAKING IT OK, LEAVE US ALONE"

HZD is more focused on a narrative, characters and combat
BOTW is more focused on exploration, verticality, and subtlety

They're both open world but the 2 games are extremely different. They got lumped together by a lot of people because they were both big exclusive adventures that released in the same timeframe

My dumb opinion that no one asked for Unpopular Opinion: I prefer BOTW bow combat to Horizons purely because it had Gyro aiming.

There's a lot of people who are against Gyro aiming for whatever reason and will loudly complain whenever someone mentions liking it. Because the internet.

Horizon just reminded me of Far Cry: Primal but without being able to have a sabertooth tiger pet who mauls dudes so I got bored of it real quickly. Everything from the crafting system, to the sidequests, to combat just felt so samey to it.

BOTW, on the other hand, was really fun. YMMV

Yeah, her English name is Prospera I think and Zeke is her driver. Definitely part of the main crew and not one of the rare blades.

Will any character be able to use other blades than their main one, or is it just Rex?

Nodosaur
Dec 23, 2014



from what I understand, you can use a character's main blade, plus three others.

Rex is unique due to Pyra's form changing ability between herself and Mythra, effectively giving him access to four blades in battle, but not all at once.

Everyone but Tora can use other blades. You can have up to 4 equipped at once though I believe you need the 'main' blade equipped.

I thought it was three blades total per character.

How many blades does a guy need, anyhow?

I think it's three and having a fourth is the MC's gimmick. All the main blades have unique gimmicks like transforming, rideable or being upgradeable by playing an arcade game.

spoiling just in case, from one of the story trailers:

didn't one of the story trailers show both Pyra and Mythra standing together in the same shot?

There are a dozen reasons of varying anime-ness this could be.

I also thought it was three total. Rex gets to double up on one of his slots and Tora can only equip Poppi forms.
